Last night I bobtailed to a pilot in Salisbury NC at midnight. It was of course full but I made room by a tower but figured someone may wake me because they can't get out. At 2 am I'm awoken to a knocking on my door, thinking a driver can't get out I roll my window down and to my aggravation it was a lot lizard looking to make some money. Geez, now I finally understand how everyone else feels as this was my first time being woken up and first time being propositioned by a ho. You think a no lot lizards sticker would prevent it happening again and where can I get some? (Stickers not ho's..lol)

Bobtail:

"Bobtailing" means you are driving a tractor without a trailer attached.

Look around some of the larger truck stop chains. If they have a rack of stickers, there will usually be a No LL sticker amongst the selection.

Tape up a large piece of paper that says "No Cash" you will never get a knock again.

Aside from signs to keep from being woken up during your sleep (which will largely be ignored by desperate people), it could be dangerous to even roll down a window.

Also - in "problem areas", LEO's may be doing reverse-stings with undercovers seeing who they can entrap.

Add to that, in todays PC world - even a compliment or a harmless flirt (there goes my toxic masculinity) can be misinterpreted and end up as a harassment complaint (in PA for example: "unwanted verbal communications or touching" - don't ask me how I know - I'll never flirt with a Red Roof Inn housekeeper again).

Truck stops are being scrutinized for "human trafficking", and many simple prostitution arrests are turning into human trafficking arrests.

Best to just ignore all knocks, unless you're parked in such a way where someone might be knocking to get you to move to prevent hitting you.
